“EDD” is Fat Wizza and Nuke Bizzle’s tribute to California’s Employment Development Department, which is described as “a federal program that extended unemployment benefits to self-employed workers, independent contractors and others who found themselves without a safety net during the coronavirus pandemic.” By filing false claims with stolen identities, Bizzle defrauded the EDD out of $1.2 million, giving himself the ability to live large from these fraudulent unemployment claims. However, his exploits soon caught up to him: Bizzle was arrested on September 23, 2020, not long after the release of the music video for “EDD,” and it is speculated that his boasting about his get-rich-quick scheme was what put him on the government’s radar.
